Near term [through tonight]
Frontal boundary has passed through all but the southern tip of the
fl big bend with northerly surface winds and drier air in the
region. Dewpoints at this hour are in the mid 50s across our SE al
counties, adjacent fl panhandle counties, and most of SW ga. 70+
dewpoints reside elsewhere. The gulf coast seabreeze has activated
in the areas of highest moisture but should remain pinned close to
the coast with northerly flow. These storms will be diurnal in
nature with most dissipated around sunset. However, a few may linger
into the evening hours.

Overnight, most locations should experience mostly clear skies
except for near the coast of the big bend counties where more clouds
should reside. Lows tonight will be around 70 across our northern
counties to mid 70s close to the coast.

Short term [Tuesday through Wednesday night]
Low level ridging will gradually push eastward over the next couple
of days, shifting the flow from northeasterly to easterly. Residual
moisture will remain over the big bend, and easterly flow will
increase the chances of the east coast seabreeze making its way into
our area. North of a line from valdosta to panama city, drier air is
in place which will continue to suppress convection for the few
days. Highs will be in the mid to upper 80s. Lows will be in the low
70s.

Long term [Thursday through Monday]
Weak synoptic forcing and low level anticyclonic development over
the atlantic are forecasted to bring rain chances into the weekend.

Sea breeze circulations should lead to afternoon thunderstorms
across the CWA with pops around 40-50% through the forecast period.

Some rain chances will stick around into the overnight hours with
persistent sea breeze forcing, particularly in the eastern portion
of our area. Near normal high temperatures topping out in the upper
80s and low temperatures in the lower 70s are expected.

Aviation [through 18z Tuesday]
The gulf coast seabreeze should be pinned down closer to the coast
today with northwest flow on the north side of a frontal boundary
draped towards the big bend. Shra or tsra cannot be ruled out at tlh
and vld this afternoon. Otherwise, dry weather at the terminals with
vfr. Overnight, tafs should remainVFR with the exception of vld
which will have more residual moisture left behind and thus the
possibility of MVFR CIGS vsbys. Once that scatters out, all tafs
will beVFR Tuesday thru 18z.

Marine
A typical summertime pattern will persist with daily chances of
showers and thunderstorms and low winds and seas outside of
thunderstorms.

Fire weather
With rh values above critical thresholds, there are no fire weather
concerns over the next few days.

Hydrology
Most of our area rivers have receded in after a round of heavy rain
last week. A few points along the choctawhatchee river remain in
action stage, but are not expected to rise to flood stage. Scattered
storms will be possible the next few days in the fl big bend and
south central ga, but rainfall totals will generally be below an
inch. No flooding is anticipated for the next several days.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
